Antarctic researchers have a long history of public outreach that will be continued by US ITASE under the auspices of the Rice University WAIS Education Program (Stephanie Shipp, pers. comm.) through public lectures, media releases, data sharing, publications and the Internet. In addition, US ITASE is well-suited to worldwide web involvement because it is a mobile data-collection activity that can be followed interactively by students (e.g., Blue Ice). Data products and interpretations developed by US ITASE will be used in curriculum development.
